Steel roof design that stands up to Muskoka’s elements

Contemporary, durable, and worry-free, steel roofs are an increasingly popular alternative to shingles, especially among cottage owners looking for a stress-free solution that will last for generations.

“Steel roofs look great with any cottage, home or boathouse style. They come in a range of colours and panel widths, and are built to stand up to Muskoka’s harshest elements season after season,” says Daniel Gisborne, owner of Steel on Wheels and a lifelong Skeleton Lake cottager.

At Steel on Wheels, each panel is measured, rolled, hand-cut and hand-seamed onsite for a precise finish. The steel is rolled out, finished and secured into place with hidden fasteners that won’t loosen, rust, or fade, creating a flawless finish that will last a lifetime, even in the face of Muskoka’s most extreme weather conditions.

Vented ridges and premium high-temperature ice and water shields are always installed with the roof to mitigate any moisture caused by condensation.

“The design is ideal for Muskoka cottages, especially given the fluctuations in temperature throughout the year,” says Daniel.

Steel on Wheels also offers fascia, soffit, and snow stops, to save your gutters and eliminate falling snow from accumulating on your front steps and walkways.

“Snow stops are secured every foot using a clamp-on system, not screws, so there aren’t any holes in the panels,” says Daniel.

While steel roofs are a valuable investment for cottagers who plan on passing their cottages down to their kids and grandkids, Daniel notes that they’re also great for boosting the resale value of your property.

“They’re a desirable home feature because they will last a lifetime,” he says.

They’re also an environmentally friendly choice, given the little waste during installation, and the recyclable nature of the materials used.

“When it does finally come time to replace your steel roof, each panel can be recycled,” says Daniel. “It’s a win-win.”
